LILONGWE-(MaraviPost)—The Church of Central African Presbyterian (CCAP) Nkhoma Synod in the country has strongly asked Malawi government to stop condoning homosexuality and abortion describing the two as evil contrary to Christianity teachings. The men of God have also told the Peter Mutharika administration to step up its effort in protecting people with Albinism.
The church made the observation in pastoral letter which was read in all churches on Sunday, June 19 titled, “Taking our stand with God in this crooked generation.”
The pastors in the letter expressed sadness, disgust and disbelief on how some people have resorted into such evil acts of killing albinos and have also questioned the conduct of the Peter Mutharika’s administration that suggest to legalise abortion and homosexuality in the country.
The letter which has been signed by the Synod’s moderator, Chatha Msangambe and Senior Clerk Archwells Katani, noted that those fighting for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexuals, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) rights are battling with the congregation and God.
“The masters of such fighters want to bring a New World Order in which anyone who refuses to abide by what they want to do will be persecuted and punished. If government and some civil society organization (CSOs) insist on homosexuality, let them ask Malawians themselves to vote through a referendum.
“However, anyone with sexual feelings towards a member of the same sex needs pastoral, clinical and psychological counseling and rehabilitation because it’s against the order of nature,” reads the letter in part.
On abortion, the church has come out strongly arguing that no any civilized nation allows a human being to intentionally take life of another person for social-economic gains without being punished.
“Direct abortion is never a morally tolerable option. It’s always a grave act of violence against a woman and her child. This so even when a woman does not see the truth because of the pressures she may be subjected to, often by the child’s father, her parents or friend.
“While on albino killings, we want government to review and enact laws that deal with witchcraft, sorcery and magic. We even condemn those organizations which promotes the teaching that God and witchcraft don’t exist.
“All persons with albinism should be given mobile handsets by government and telephones operators as part of their corporate social responsibilities that they call the police when they feel uncomfortable with situations,” suggested the church.
Meanwhile the church has set aside June 26, 2016 as a special prayers Sunday day to ask God for mercy and forgiveness on Malawi for the sins on albino killings and sloppy approach on abortion and homosexuality.
There was no immediate reaction from both government and two human rights bodies CHRR and Cedep on homosexuality which they advocate.
